    What do you know about this PSU?
    Also... what other graphics options do you have besides the HD 5830? We're used to seeing those cards go for $150~$160.
  2. dont worry about the PSU, ive upgraded to a SILVERSTONE DA750 750W ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Modular Active PFC Power Supply. and as for the video card, what do you mean it goes for $150-$160, if you can, can you please post a link so i can see this?
  3. Where are you buying these from? Newegg?
    Fill this out: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

    The system you linked would work, but you could do better for $850.
  4. Are you planning to use two video cards?
    If not you don't need a 750W PSU.
  5. Drop the CPU down to a 955 -> invest money into a 5850. 5830 is a crap card.
  6. to WR2: thats the wrong video card, i want to get a XFX card. and how could i get better for $850?
